Modern Rock Forum Mixtapes (Week 7) – edgeyyz/Dave/David/Kyoycz(bacon)...

Hello, everyone. Here is my specifically ordered list of stuff I think that you should listen to:

My Super Special Awesome Mix!!!

OSI – Radiologue
Blackfield – Epidemic
Fightstar – Grand Unification Pt. 1
Them Crooked Vultures – Dead End Friends
The Amish Mafia – The Battle Within
Muse – Fury
Porcupine Tree – Wedding Nails
Maximum the Hormone – Bu-ikikaesu!!
Umphrey’s McGee – Wife Soup
Steven Wilson - Sectarian
Birds of Tokyo – Medicine
Karnivool – Deadman / Change (Part 1)
The Butterfly Effect – Worlds on Fire

For anyone who cares, The Amish Mafia is my friend’s band (he’s the drummer, I’m a roadie), and they may be getting a proper record deal in the near future (which is quite nifty). I was going to anchor with five Aussie bands but decided to cut out Dead Letter Circus and Cog at the last minute for time and consistency. I hope you all enjoy!!!!

Here are the past mixes:

Week 1 - BenRaah
Week 2 - Squall142
Week 3 - Hazzmatazz
Week 4 - Uber-Rocker
Week 5 - steve_muse
Week 6 - Alter-Bridge

Mixtapes to look forward to:

Week 8 - 12/3 - That other Will character (slipknot5678)
Week 9 - 12/10 - Dan (Dan_5893)
Week 10 - 12/17 - Andy (badpun)
Week 11 - 12/24 - Stephen (stepco12345)
Week 12 - 12/31 - Aodhan/Duff (Duffman123)

The sign-up thread if you’re interested in doing one of these.

You kept the Will 2 in there, even though it wasn't the original list and was just edited in by the real Will 2?

What the **** is this shit?

Anyway, this looks like a great playlist, I'll listen tomorrow.

??? actually has a name nowadays. Check the first post of the sign-up thread! See, these errors wouldn't happen if people just copied that list.

Looks like a plenty diverse list. Will listen to it in a bit.

I guess I'll just have to put Duff, because I don't have a clue how to pronounce 'Aodhan.'

We do have that in common.

I was thirteen when I made this username. And there are still about four Slipknot songs I like.

Edit: Also, Duff, I like your first name, and I think I know how to pronounce it.

The band in my username never wrote Guiding Light, I Belong To You, or NSC.

Giving it a spin now, Dave. I had Fury in my mix but took it out at the last minute. It looks like Karnivool absolutely own the UG mixtape.

EDIT: Dave, you are such a wuss. You changed Will 2 to "that other Will" because he threw a tantrum about being Will 2.

I've only heard the first 9 songs because I'm going to bed after posting this, but here are my notes thus far:

-First two songs were brilliant
-Strongly disliked the Fightstar song
-TCV was a good one, the intro reminded of a Raconteurs song, Five of the Five?
-Maximum the Hormone sounds as their name suggests
-Umphree's surprised me since this song sounded more focused than I what I'd previously heard. It wasn't just noodling this time, which would've been tempting for a jam band

Because they're not good enough.

Oh, deal with it. I only thought to do it because I was already going to be putting in Duff's name.

If it wasn't for their reputation as a jam band, I wouldn't have guessed so based on the two albums of theirs I have.

Well I didn't notice that when I finally looked through that thread Friday.

I have to say I'm a bit disappointed. It started off promisingly, but I felt after Epidemic the list really took a plunge, until Fury lifted it back up. The Amish Mafia weren't bad by any means, but the recording wasn't great and Ska isn't my thing. Wedding Nails was good, but then it descended into "meh" territory (and in the case of Maximum The Hormone, "please please please stop the vocals") until the Australians came to the rescue.

I didn't try to go for consistency throughout the entire list, so I can see where the problems with the middle-ish stuff were, as the bookenders fit together much better. When we do round 2 I figured I'll do something that flows better as a whole. And unfortunately, in the case of The Amish Mafia, they're probably going in a new direction soon (which was news to me), which I don't think will work out well in the long-run...

I wish you'd included the Cog, I'm trying to get into them more. Otherwise, it's a pretty eclectic list, I was surprised by Fightstar, I thought they would be more similar to Busted (lol). I can't stand Maximum the Hormone, or most Japanese music either to be honest. TCV were disappointing for me, I enjoyed the BoT song, a lot of their stuff is growing on me at the moment. Butterfly Effect are a strong choice too.
